The Sunday Sun says the Blackpool midfield maestro â€“ highlighted by boss Pardew as one of the best performing players this season â€“ is one of the stars Toon are considering as they look to make a small number of â€śsignificantâ€ť additions in the January transfer window.
Adam was on Chris Hughtonâ€™s shortlist last season and Newcastle would have made a move if the Tangerines hadnâ€™t gone up.
Pardew enthused: â€śLook at Charlie Adam for example. Most clubs would want to take that boy after what heâ€™s done and the character and example he sets.
â€śYou canâ€™t tell me heâ€™s out there on his own. You could name three or four Blackpool players in that category, although heâ€™s probably pulled up more trees.
â€śIâ€™m not the type to say there are none in that division worth taking.â€ť
